Geodis extends airfreight services between Europe and USA
PRESS RELEASE – Geodis has announced the continuation of its scheduled own controlled network service linking Europe and the USA. The current service, providing three full rotations each week, has been confirmed throughout 2021.
With trans-Atlantic air freight capacity continuing to be tight and forecasted to remain so well into 2021, Geodis is contracting freighters to operate within its own controlled network as part of its global AirDirect service offering. The 2021 schedule is confirmed between Amsterdam Schiphol and Chicago O’Hare with three departures and three return flights a week.
“Our customers on both sides of the Atlantic have been suffering from a severe shortage of regular, guaranteed air freight options. We foresee this situation remaining for some time and so have committed resources to provide stability”, says Eric Martin-Neuville, executive vice president of freight forwarding at Geodis.
Through its AirDirect product, Geodis will offer capacity wherever the market demand requires, the company states. Additionally, Geodis AirDirect services operate a weekly fixed day schedule between Hong Kong and Guadalajara in Mexico as well as Shanghai-Amsterdam-Shanghai.
